As soon as me and my partner drove through the gates and along the winding driveway I knew we had found our wedding venue. Turning the corner and seeing the hall in all its glory was simply magical and stepping through the doors confirmed this was the one place I could see myself getting married. We had the perfect wedding from start to finish! From the off the communication from the team - especially Niall and Jason was exceptional. Any question big or small was answered promptly and I knew that our wedding was in safe hands. On the day itself I didn't have to think about anything as everything was taken care of and we could relax and enjoy our big day without any worry. All of the staff went out of their way to ensure we had the best day and we are so thankful. Our guests all commented on how amazing the venue was and many of them said it was the best wedding they'd ever been to. The food was exceptional with everyone raving about the wedding breakfast and evening platters. It was truly the perfect day!

Jason/Matt (along with other members of staff) made us feel very at ease about our special day from the minute the bridal party arrived to the day we left the venue, and they updated us at every point throughout the day. They made amendments to any special requests that we made to make our day perfect. The food was absolutely delicious - I don't think we will ever eat belly pork or beef cheek like it ever again! There were so many compliments floating around the room about the food - even to this day, we still have conversations with the guests about how unbelievable the food was. The staff serving the food and drinks were prompt and polite to all guests, including any that may have been difficult with their requests. Overall, the day couldn't have been any more perfect. Some of the guests even said it was the best wedding they had ever been to! We are so lucky and grateful that we were able to have our special day at such a spectacular venue. I can't put in to words how remarkable it was and ourselves (and the guests) will remember it for the rest of lives.

My first impression of Knowsley hall was wow…WHAT A VENUE! I fell in love as soon as we pulled through to the gates and then turned right onto the drive. The estate, the grounds and the staff were everything you could wish for when looking for a perfect wedding venue. As everyone knows the venue at Knowsley Hall is beautiful but I think what really makes it such a wonderful venue is the staff that are working there. I can’t count the amount of times me (or my mum!) phone called Niall, Jason and Emma on the run up to the big day and nothing was ever too much trouble, they were always so happy to help. On the day of the wedding they really made us both feel special, I can’t tell you how much they did for us. Even before I walked down the aisle a staff member could see I was getting emotional and handed me a tissue it was just what I needed as I didn’t want my make up running!! But this is just a great example of how on hand they are. We have been with our wedding co ordination Jason right from the beginning and I can’t tell you how many times we went to open evenings, open days and even the picnic at Knowsley, he always had time to speak to us. Me and Dylan were so happy Jason was there with us on our big day as we really felt like he understood us as a couple and also as a family. We honestly can’t thank Knowsley Hall enough for everything they did for us there is too many highlights and I find it hard just picking a few! I just hope they know that we really did appreciate everything they did for us on our special day.
